Shep Travels | Our Journeys So Far

Wednesday, 6 January 2016

We have been lucky enough to visit some wonderful places, meet fantastic people and enjoy a wealth of new experiences in the last few years. I have tried to keep up with posts about them but there is so much to tell I think I will still be sharing stories from our travels for a while to come yet. In August 2014 we travelled to Paris for a whistlestop city sightseeing tour on our way down to the south, to a gorgeous villa in Montemboeuf where we spent a wonderful week with friends enjoying the French countryside. The villa was beautiful and I think the children would have stayed there forever if they had been able - with it's own pool, breathtaking views of rolling hills and tucked away from all the hustle & bustle it was the ideal location for a quiet family break away from it all.


In September 2014 I travelled to the Greek Island of Rhodes with Mark Warner Holidays after winning a place on their Blogger trip to Levante Resort. I thoroughly enjoyed a few days away with some lovely ladies and lots of fun and relaxation was had. Also cocktails.


At the beginning of the October half term we packed up the car and headed down to Mullion in Cornwall for a long weekend. We took the opportunity to make the most of the natural beauty of the area, visiting National Trust sites and enjoying coastal walks and delicious Cornish ice cream! We look forward to visiting again very soon.


In March 2015 the Mister and I set off for Adelaide, South Australia for a friend's wedding, it was the trip of a lifetime and I can't wait to go back again. I've completely fallen in love with Oz & I hope to be able to take the children next time because I know they'll love it just as much as we did. A beautiful country with so much to see & explore.


In June 2015 we were offered a last minute getaway with Mark Warner Holidays to their San Lucianu Resort in Corsica. We were at the end of a very long, difficult school year with L and it was the perfect opportunity for us to have a week away and recharge. Corsica is beautiful and San Lu is a fantastic resort for kids. Highly recommended.


October 2015 brought with it our week away as #MarkWarnerMum family ambassadors, we stayed at Lakitira Resort in Kos during half term and got to enjoy everything Mark Warner has to offer a family like ours - an inclusive holiday experience for teens and tweens as well as little ones, and outstanding provision for special needs children within their kids clubs, at no extra cost. What more could we ask for!


We are currently in the planning stages of holidays and days out for 2016 although the Mister has already surprised me with a trip to NYC this March! I can't wait to visit and see all of the sights, and will be sure to share our highlights and photos from our trip here on the blog and on instagram using #NYCSheps. Where will 2016 take you?

  1. Lovely post Julie:) you have enjoyed some fabulous family holidays. I keep hearing great things about Mark Warner holidays especially the kids facilities, water sports and food which are all very important to my family;) I will check out the resorts you have stayed at in Kos and Corsica as we are hoping to stay with MW this summer but I have been struggling to narrow down the choices as all of the resorts look amazing! Enjoy NYC:)

    1. MW are absolutely second to none, I can't imagine holdaying with anyone else to be honest - it's such an inclusive experience for the whole family and with one as complex as ours they meet all of our needs with ease! They are all amazing resorts but Corsica with little ones would be ideal as it is quite a small and intimate little resort :)

    1. Australia was mind-blowing, I had the most amazing time and it feels like it was so long ago now (a year!) - I can't wait to go back and experience it with the children as I know they will love it as much as we did!

  4. Fantastic trips! Your photos just look so relaxing, and a world away from the weather we've had recently. Hope you have some more fab trips in 2016, and back to Oz some day too #brilliantblogposts

  5. Wow, you have certainly seen some sights in 2105. I am a bit of a home bird, but I do love the Cornish coast ans have been to Mullion several times.
    Thanks for linking up, Tracey xx #happydiaries

  6. Wow, it looks like you've had some lovely holidays! We'd love to do a bit more travelling as a family than we have done since the little lady came along in the last two years so will definitely be trying to be a bit more adventurous this year :-). Emily #MarvMondays
